Ideal location and plenty of room.

  • 5 of 5

We arrived to a clean and tidy house. Kitchen is a good size with all the items needed. Both the front room and back room had TV's so we could watch our programmes whilst the children watched theirs. The house had three bathrooms which was great. The house us close to the main shops and beach so we didn't have to use the car all the time,

My myself and 8 other members of my family had an great time staying at this property. It was a home from home experience.. except the log fire was an added bonus, we don't have one of these at home. The décor is comfy and cosy making it feel like a home rather than a holiday let. The kitchen is extremely well equipped with more than enough cutlery and utensils to provide a serviceable self catering stay. The milk in the fridge and fruit was a nice touch too. The property was lovely and clean, all beds well made and towels left in each room.

We stayed at this property to enjoy a short family stay, and that we did. The house runs in a straight line to the town taking only a few minutes to walk, even with a small toddler in tow. We took a day visit to Butlins, which with our emergency service card and forces card, was a bargain at only £29 for the 8 of us. I'm glad my sister in law looked at the discount as I actually didn't know that anyone who works for the emergency services or forces get discount. We had a drink at The Hairy Dog, this has an outdoor adventure playground which the kids loved and played in for ages, while we had a relaxing quiet drink, which was well needed after the loudness of Butlins. The kids wanted to go back to this pub the next day, (for the playground) which of course we didn't object too.

We parked 3 cars on the drive, and there was ample street parking too if you needed it.

I will and already have recommended this property to my friends, and If we return to Minehead,, which I'm sure we will. I will be definitely staying here. Thank you Alex and Donna for your hospitality.
